A Conversation With Nancy Schön

At 93 years young, Nancy Schön lives a life of passion and purpose using her artistic talent to engage the world in public art. You can find her on most days spending hours lovingly laboring over wax and clay in her studio in Newton, MA, creating the beginnings of her bronze sculptures. Although her contributions to public art are many, Nancy is best known for her charming bronze sculptures of Eeyore, Piglet and Pooh at the Newton Free Library, the Tortoise and the Hare at Boston's Copley Square and the iconic Make Way for Ducklings at the Boston Public Garden.

Join your host, Newton Community Pride, for an up close and personal evening of conversation with Nancy Schön.

Overdue Series: Un nuovo momento: Reframing Columbus By Reclaiming Our Italian Past

In an era in which anti-racism efforts are center stage in the U.S., it has become increasingly difficult to justify association with the historical record of Columbus, the original European invader of the Indigenous nations of the Americas. Must the Italian American community be forever linked to this violent legacy in order for us to be considered American? Join us for a discussion with Gabriel Piemonte, founder and president of the Italian American Heritage Society of Chicago, in which the history of Italian American political culture is traced and a path forward is mapped which respects both Italian American heritage and faces the uncomfortable truths of our past. This program is part of Overdue: Confronting Race and Racism in Newton.

Gabriel Piemonte was born and raised in Boston and is the grandson of longtime Boston City Council President Gabriel Piemonte. He graduated from Catholic Memorial High School in 1986 and has a degree in Communications and Journalism from Suffolk University.

Overdue: Confronting Race and Racism in Newton is a coalition of organizations and individuals that aims to equip and empower our community with the understanding, knowledge, and skills to actively fight racism both in Newton and beyond. We provide residents with opportunities to listen, to learn, and to act in order to dismantle systemic racism within our city. This series of events challenges us to do better and examine the way we treat each other in order to make Newton a more welcoming place to live.

Exploring the History of Newton's Village Centers

Village centers can be found throughout the city, and though they range greatly in terms of how they look and feel, together they comprise the commercial and retail heart of the city. They serve as hubs for employment, socializing, shopping, dining, entertainment, civic life, religious and community gatherings, and many other uses. Many are accessible by at least one form of public transit, and village centers are among the most walkable, bikeable, and accessible areas in the city. But how did they get to be this way? The Planning Department has created a short presentation that includes historical images and interpretations about how and why Newton’s villages evolved through time and some thoughts about what makes a village center a village center. Join a panel of Historic Newton and other community members to share your thoughts, questions, and comments about the historical development patterns of Newton's village centers.

This event is part of the Zoning Redesign: Village Center engagement and outrech. For more information please visit www.newtonma.gov/zoningredesign/vc
